, a sudden unpredictable event that could up-end their campaigns. hurricane sandy has been that for the 2012 campaign. but the monster storm in its aftermath have been much more. a continuing november nightmare for millions of people across the eastern seaboard and especially in new york and new jersey. the devastation across the jersey shore is staggering. in some areas homeowners are only now being allowed to inspect the ruins of what had been their homes to try and salvage what they can. in hoboken across the hudson river from new york city, families trapped by sandy even today, are being rescued by units of the national guard. in new york, tens of thousands of commuters lined up for buses as most subway tunnels remain flooded. federal officials have already brought in a million meals and other emergency supplies to the city and more will be needed. the totals across the country in sandy's wake, at least 93 dead including 38 in new york city and 12 in new jersey. some 4.5 million homes and businesses with
." hurricane sandy may be heading to pennsylvania but the damage left in its wake has been devastating. devastating snowstorms in west virginia and high waves that brought shipments to a shop in lake michigan. the damage felt at the seaside communities and jersey shore and coastal areas in and around new york city. after two days of suspended animation, wall street was up and operating on generator power, but the rest of lower manhattan remains dark, and the city subways and commuter rails which bring millions to work etch day have just barely begun to return to service. with some tunnels still full of seawater the damage will not be repaired overnight. two days after sandy made landfall emergency officials report at least 63 dead, including as many as 30 in new york and eight in new jersey. 6 million homes and businesses in 17 states without power. including around 650,000 in new york city alone. and costs to the country's economy estimated between $10 billion and $20 billion and growing. we're going to talk about the political, economic and environment implications of hurricane sandy
'm looking at the national map because of hurricane sandy and how hurricane sandy could play a role in the popular vote. let's take a look at new york and particularly in nasa county right next to new york city. that's on long island. almost a million people there lost power. the long island power authority said it could take up to ten days to restore power in nasa county. voters there went for the president last time. it's a big county and now new york city, next it to new york city where about 2 million people lost power, manman has about 8% of the state's population and in the last election it went 86% for the president. these are all blue for a reason and they were all hit by hurricane sandy. let me go over to new jersey to essex county new jersey. thousands of people still without power. that county has 9.4% of the state's total pop lair and they went for the president by 76% in 2008. so if they can't vote because of the storm damage we could see a dip nationally on the democratic side in the popular vote. now if you go back to the south and the middle of the

to read into it. we'll take a break and when we come back we'll talk about hurricane sandy. and of course fox news is trying to blame president obama. >> this is going badly for obama because at a certain point we're all in this together, let's do this, then people get their patience and their emotion run very thin. >> something has to be done immediately. >> cenk: and you will love our elbow of the day at the end of the show. who it falls on, why it falls on them. and it (vo) brought to you by mucinex fast max. use as directed. >> cenk: now we have serious fallout from super storm sandy. a lot of people have not gotten their power back and there is perilous situations in different areas. >> look how desperate it has got in this neighborhood. we're outside of the key foods avenue a and east fourth street, and people are dumpster diving. what they're going after is the food that was inside these key foods. we presume it was spoiled and dumped out here for garbage. but instead those here are so hungry they literally pried open this dumpster. you see it open right now and they're literally

was affected by hurricane sandy. how much money do you think new york and new jersey can actually hope to get from washington to help recover? >> i think it is too early to venture a guess as to how much money. we'll see. clearly a large amount of money is needed. one interesting fact that i don't think has been mentioned is that fema has in its current budget in its current account which doesn't need replenishment from congress about $6 billion. all of which it could spend on new york and new jersey and connecticut. and that would exhaust its funds for the year. it would then have to come back to congress either for more funds but also because there will be other natural disasters there will be tornadoes in the midwest, flooding somewhere else an earthquake. and for any of that, to have any money, they're going to have to come back to congress. not simply for the new york/new jersey tri-state area. >> eliot: i hate to say it is a good thing but it means there will be a larger political coalition that will be supporti
